PIX Theatre hosts variety of entertainment in April

By Jacob Hunsanger

LAPEER — The historic PIX Theatre in downtown Lapeer calls itself the “home for entertainment,” and throughout the month of April that’s exactly what it’s going to be. From music to science and more, April is a good month for shows at the PIX before the season starts to wind down in May.

Following a two week break, the amazing musician Todd Wolfe will grace the stage at the PIX for an evening of amazing rock and blues on April 12. Tickets are already selling for the concert, which is sure to draw a large crowd as the nationally touring band comes to Lapeer. The Todd Wolfe band in comprised of Todd Wolfe, Roger Voss and Justine Gardner. Advance tickets cost $25 for adults or $23 for students and seniors. Any tickets remaining will be sold at the door for a slightly higher cost.

Just a few days after that rocking concert, a different style of concert will take place on April 16. Mark and Mary, members of the popular Boogie Woogie Babies from Grand Rapids, will perform at the PIX during the afternoon. The duo will perform hits by legendary performers such as Ella Fitzgerald and Elvis Presley, and many others.

Toying with Science, a fun but educational show for area school kids, will take place at the PIX twice on April 29 during the day. The PIX Theatre is currently taking field trip applications from area schools to attend the program, which will be a mixture of fun and science that will leave kids as entertained as they are educated.

In Toying with Science, Garry Krinsky will combine circus skills, mime, music and audience participation with the students to teach them about different principles of science like gravity, leverage, and simple machines. Tickets for the show are $5 each for students and chaperones, and any school interested should contact the PIX Theatre Box Office.

On May 3, the student band Third Degree Burns will perform on the PIX stage as well. This annual concert is both a fundraiser and a publicity show for the band, which allows area students to join for free and learn an instrument, tour with the band around the county, and learn what it takes to be a professional musician. Tickets for the Third Degree Burns concert cost $10 for adults or $8 for students and seniors if purchased in advance.

For more information about any upcoming shows, or to purchase tickets, go online to www.pixlapeer.org or call the PIX Box Office at 810-664-4824.
